Love (2) Whoever loves true life, will love true love. ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed. ~J. Krishnamurti When one has once fully entered the realm of love, the world–no matter how imperfect–becomes rich and beautiful, it consists solely of opportunities for love. ~Søren Kierkegaard Flowers do not spread their fragrance; it is an effortless happening. When the heart opens, love awakens and spreads like the fragrance of a blooming flower. ~ Amrit Desai The beginning of love is search But the end is rest. ~Unknown A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love. ~Mother Theresa Caught by our own thoughts, we worry about everything. But once we get drunk on Love whatever will be, will be. ~Rumi The loving mind can observe peace and joy in one moment, and then grief in the next moment, and it will not be shattered by the change. A mind filled with love can be likened to the sky with a variety of clouds moving through it–some light and fluffy, others ominous and threatening. No matter what the situation, the sky is not threatened by the clouds. It is free. ~Sharon Salzberg Before you have freed yourself from your mind–you may get glimpses of true joy, true love, or of a deep inner peace, still but vibrantly alive. These are aspects of your true nature. ~Eckhart Tolle Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, Love is knowing I am everything and between the two…my life moves. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj Love tempered with wisdom is the secret of life. ~Greek temple inscription First return to your true being and then act from the heart of love. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj Love, as the word is generally understood, denotes separation, whereas in true non-objective relationship we do not love others, we ARE others. ~Ramesh Balsekar It is love alone that leads to right action. What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will. ~J. Krishnamurti Love moves without an agenda. It just moves because it is its nature–to move. ~Adyashanti Love is always bestowed as a gift–freely, willingly, and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved; we love to love. ~Leo Buscaglia When your love is pure or spiritual, there is no demand, no expectation. There is only the sweetest feeling of spontaneous oneness with the human being or beings concerned. ~Sri Chinmoy In real love there is no relationship, because there are not two persons to be related to. In real love there is only love, a flowering, a fragrance, a melting, a merging. Only in egoistic love are there two persons, the lover and the loved. And whenever there is the lover and the loved, love disappears. Whenever there is love, the lover and the beloved both disappear into love. ~Osho Being the knowing creates a clear space of loving presence that allows all things and all people to be as they are. ~Eckhart Tolle The Holy Spirit is our harpist, And all strings, Which are touched in Love Must sound. ~Mechtild of Magdeburg From pure heart comes pure love which flows out into the universe. ~Morris Peckham As you dissolve into love, you’re not thinking about loving; you’re just being love, radiating like the sun. ~Ram Dass People will love you, people will hate you, and none of it will have anything to do with you. ~Abraham-Hicks If I love you, what business is it of yours? ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe You don’t have to earn or deserve love. You are love. Loving is never about how others treat you. It is always about how you are treating yourself. ~Rhonda Britten Love cannot be hoarded. ~Leonard Cohen Love is not a possession. It is the flow of God’s energy. ~Swami Chidvilasananda As long as we possess, we shall never love. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti Love does not claim possession, but gives freedom. ~Rabindranath Tagore Love does not cause suffering; what causes it is the sense of ownership, which is love’s opposite. ~Antoine de St. Exupery Love is a bird and it loves to be free. It needs the whole sky to grow. ~Osho You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free. ~Thich Nhat Hanh Give everyone the freedom to be who they are. Then you have let go of demands to be understood, loved, agreed with. ~Adyashanti We love purely when we release other people to be who they are. ~Marianne Williamson Love is not dependency. Dependency robs you of the freedom to be and chokes the love. Depend on love and love becomes imprisonment; give love and love becomes your freedom. When you give love it grows; when you demand love it disappears. There is no way to give love. It comes from giving and expecting nothing in return. When love comes from giving, it comes to you as grace. ~Yogi Amrit Desai But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. ~Kahlil Gibran The moment your heart opens towards me, I am with you wherever you are. ~Osho I have no fear of losing you, for you aren’t an object of my property, or anyone else’s. I love you as you are, without attachment, without fears, without conditions, without egoism, trying not to absorb you. I love you freely because I love your freedom, as well as mine. ~Anthony de Mello Love makes you empty — empty of jealousy, empty of power trips, empty of anger, empty of competitiveness, empty of your ego and all its garbage. But love also makes you full of things which are unknown to you right now; it makes you full of fragrance, full of light, full of joy. ~Osho The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. ~Thomas Merton Love causes us to be deeply connected in an unspoken way. It happens when we’re really available, really open. ~Adyashanti Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition. ~Alexander Smith I cannot know you if I hold on to the image I have of you. ~Sivananda Radha Love begins with paying attention to others, with an act of gracious self- forgetting. ~Anam Cara In the eyes of Love, all people are doing the best they can. ~Deepak Chopra All things are beautiful seen through the eyes of love. ~Sathya Sai Baba Using another as a means of satisfaction and security is not love. Love is never security; love is a state in which there is no desire to be secure; it is a state of vulnerability. ~J. Krishnamurti We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love. ~Sigmund Freud I’ve come to believe that total nakedness, that is absolute transparency, that is utter and unfettered and profound visibility, is the only way that we can truly love. Anything less, is self-defense. ~Neale Donald Walsch The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. ~Ram Dass Romantic love is the story of how you need another person to complete you. It’s an absolutely insane story. My experience is that I need no one to complete me. As soon as I realize that, everyone completes me. ~Byron Katie Instead of reacting out of your fear, you need to learn how to respond out of your love. Romantics are always looking for “The One.” But, everywhere you go, you’re always (and only) meeting “The One.” Every one is “The One.” ~Chug Hillig Whenever we manage to love without expectations, calculations, negotiations, we are indeed in heaven. ~Rumi Each moment from all sides rushes to us the call of love. ~Rumi It is a great art to have an abundance of knowledge and experience–to know the richness of life, the beauty of existence, the struggles, the miseries, the laughter, the tears–and yet keep your mind very simple; and you can have a simple mind only when you know how to love. ~J. Krishnamurti The heart has its reasons that reason does not know. ~Pascal There are basically two movements of consciousness: love and fear. Love is allowing what is, and fear is resisting it. ~Nirmala You are love itself when you are not afraid. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj It is love alone that gives worth to all things. ~St. Teresa of Avila In every community there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart there is the power to do it. ~Marianne Williamson Believe in love’s infinite journey, for it is your own, for you are love. Love is life. ~Rumi Love is an infinity. So howsoever you open, you will always feel more is possible. It is a journey which begins, but never ends. Love’s journey begins, but never ends. It is eternity. ~Osho I would open each day like a present, tender toward what ever came my way– every texture–joy or pain– searing sun or healing rain, for I have seen the masks of my Beloved. ~Kirtana If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another. ~Buddha All deeds of kindness and beneficence take place in the soil of a loving heart. ~Hazrat Inayat Khan A loving balance does not keep score of giving and receiving–it is all love. And, makes for a beautiful limitless existence. ~Jeanne Porter Ashley For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow. ~Antoine de St. Exupery When your love touches someone else’s pain, it becomes compassion. ~Steven Levine Because of love I have become the giver of light. ~Rumi Love is, above all, the gift of oneself. ~Jean Anouilh Like a caring mother holding and guarding the life of her only child, so with a boundless heart hold yourself and all beings. ~Buddha Give like the rose gives its perfume–effortlessly, unconditionally because it is its own nature. ~Swami Vivekananda The ocean has only water to give. No matter what you throw in, it will only throw water back. Similarly, a Self-realized being is an ocean of love. He has only love to share. No matter what you throw in, you will only get love. There is nothing else in there. ~Tarun Sardana Peace and war start within one’s own home. If we really want peace for the world, let us start by loving one another within our families. ~Mother Teresa Love is lost in immensities; it comes in simple, gentle ways. ~Joseph Fort Newton Loving action is right action. It’s as simple as giving a hand to someone who stumbles or picking up a child who has fallen on the floor. We take such direct, natural actions every day of our lives without considering them special. And they’re not special. Each is simply the best possible response to that situation in that moment. ~Bernie Glassman Where is there is great love there are always miracles. ~Willa Cather When love is deep much can be accomplished. ~Shinichi Suzuki
